DB Lunges killed my legs yesterday

My trainer finally has me doing some DB lunges which he has let me skip in the past because of my knee, but with it getting stronger I tried these and while the knee held up, my quads were burning!  It was very humbling to struggle with only 10 pound DBs in each hand.  Wow, I feel really wimpy.  But you gotta start small.  My quads are sore this morning.

This morning Cathi woke me up, "Gordon are you swimming today?"  It was 5:50am.  I set the alarm time last night, but didn't arm it.  Crap!

By the time I got to the pool it was too late to swim with Masters, so I just did the workout they had up on the board:

500 free warm up
200 kick no fins
200 - 4 x 50's free fast on 1:000
1500 - 3 x (25, 50, 75, 100, 100, 75, 50, 25) :10 ri 1st set free fast, 2nd pull buoy and ankle strap, no paddles!, 3rd - IM by 25
300 - 4 x 75's kick fins
1000 - 8 x 125's pull - odd back, even free :10 ri
100 easy

3,800 yards total in 65 minutes
